Mettani Chegodilu / Soft and Cruncy Cooked Rice Flour Rings

 This is a very good instant snack and very famous in our area ( north east andhra). This is made of rice flour with other spices and cooked like a dough. It looks crispy outside and soft inside. This is very tasty if eat right after it is made , cannot be stored for later. You have to make the chegodi's in batches and fry them instead of making all of them and frying once.
